Lizzie and Paul's wedding photography | The Walled Garden at Beeston Fields, Nottingham

11th October 2016

Ever wondered what a Humanist ceremony is? Well so had we until we had the pleasure of photographing Lizzie and Paul's wedding in the Walled Garden at Beeston Fields.

Lizzie and Paul are the ultimate wedding DIYers, they created just about everything for their special day and where they couldn't do it they had friends and family help out! Lizzie hand made her bouquet using a mixed media of crochet and embroidery, she also knitted all the bunting and between them they also made beautiful hanging garlands above every wedding table.

Where the couldn't make things themselves they got friends to help out and Paul's brother even made the wedding cake cutting knife and not to be undone Paul created the Lego base for their fantastic lego cake! In fact there wasn't much they didn't do and it just goes to show that with a little imagination everyones dream wedding is achievable.

So back to the humanist ceremony, Lizzie and Paul had dreamed about having their wedding outdoors and there are few places more suited to it than the Walled Garden. Lizzie did her bridal prep at home and Paul was in the bridal suite at the venue, this couple are far from conventional and thats what we loved about them. First off was a quick legal ceremony in the club house and then it was over to the garden to meet up with friends and family. If you've never been to a humanist ceremony then its a celebration of love where the couple are talked about and their lives, dreams and hopes are shared with everyone in attendance. Its a lovely way to get married and everyone gets to find out all about the couple.

Straight afterwards it was time for couple photos and we love them. Lizzie and Paul of the type of couple we love because they let us do our thing and take some amazing wedding shots of them both around the garden. The only slight issue was that Lizzie loved her wedding dress so much she couldn't stop spinning to show it off! It didn't matter as we like to think documentary wedding photography is not about taking hours up with photos but is all about capturing the moment and letting a wedding be a wedding!

We could go on and on about their big day but instead we'll let you have a peak at some of the highlights in their wedding gallery.
